Marani - Mayfair - London

Courtesy of the fine people at Zomato, I was invited to a secret location, it was kept so under wraps that not even I had heard of the cuisine before. 

Until recently, not much is known of Georgian cuisine - it was a secret to almost everyone.

Georgian food has slowly been creeping out of the woodwork.

Hiding in between the winding walkways in Mayfair is Marani; a Georgian restaurant.

With Marani, you're instantly transported back to the 19th century as soon as you step through the doors.

The high ceilings, the hand painted walls and the warm hospitality of the staff all add to the endearing charm of the restaurant.

Viet Eat - Holborn - London

So, I've been trying a get back into shape.

I've never been one that could *gasp* go on a diet.

The thought causes me to crumble into despair.

 That, and because I lack self control when it comes to any type of sustenance.

If you're edible.

I will find you, and when I do.  I will eat you.

Abeno - Covent Garden - London


What a wonderful phrase.

Okonomiyaki! Aint no passing craaaze. 

(You see where I'm heading with this? :D )

It means... "What you want - GRILLED."

When a dish has this literal meaning as it's name, you just know that it will be what dreams are made of.

Recipes: 2 Step - Chocolate Croissants *

Wearing that domestic halo can be tough at times.

Sometimes you just need to cut yourself some slack.

Hotel Chocolat and Jus Rol kindly sent me some goodies to toy with.

There was only one thing that you should make with such a bounty.

2 Step Chocolate Croissants were born.

Vivo - Angel - London

Dessert is the best ice-breaker.

First of all, you're supposed to share.

So... hello spoon action ;]

Secondly, let's be real if you're talking about chocolate and cream, you're already flirting.

Right, now all you need is a location.

So where can you find a place where all the desserts are displayed right in front of you - where you can shamelessly wander around pondering which one you want.

Say hello to Vivo.

The Rooftop Cafe - The Exchange - London Bridge - London

There are very few places in London like The Rooftop Cafe at The Exchange.

Only a handful of places exude such an exclusive atmosphere without the pretentious vibe and extensive price tag. 

Even fewer restaurants make you feel so at home that you don't want to leave.

Layla - Wimbledon - London

I have to admit that I rarely venture down to the south side of London.

After living in Central for the past 4 years I have been a little spoilt.

Everything I could possibly dream of eating is within walking distance.

The thought of having to travel more than half an hour anywhere is a struggle.

But everything changed when Layla came knocking on my door.

She beckoned me to come down to visit her in the dirty south, all the way down in Wimbledon.

It's hard to say no to such an invitation when she looks like this...
